You’re Gonna Wanna Read This! 7/24/18

Kathryn Butler wrote on the need for Christian love to be upon those who are suffering from depression.  She gives a thoughtful and clear analysis about what depression is and what it does to the mind and soul of a person.  “While the Bible urges us to open our arms to those crushed in spirit, too often sufferers of depression find the church to be a home for ridicule, rather than truth and love,” Butler wrote.  This is a great read for everyone.

Yes! Yes! Yes!  Ian Hamilton does a great job in presenting how we are to view the Lord’s Supper.  I would highly recommend this reading.  For the reasons he gave here, and more, we changed the way we do the Lord’s Supper in our church.  Hamilton is right on the money!
